Only time its worth doing is when the .exe itself doesn't have silent options or the .exe does nothing more then do an arch verification to the launch the correct .msi while then closing the original .exe. If the later is the case then at times you will have failed installs because of multiple packages trying to run at same time. This is especially the case with the K2.

It is generally considered bad practice to use nested MSI installations.

Googling 'Nested MSI' will bring up a lot of information for you to look at.

Nesting MSI Csutom Action is an old depreciated ability. While it works, it is no longer supported. It is considered best practice to use dependencies via exe wrapper.
