VMware: This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installed package

After trying to install vCenter Server I received a warning from Windows Installer:

This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installed package

With some troubleshooting at the VMware vCenter Server MSI package to start this package with a logfile, command:

msiexec /l*vx c:\install.log /i "E\vCenter-Server\VMware vCenter Server.msi"

I received this installer Install.log output:
