You can, but would never NEVER ever be recommended.

PS: unless there is a valid reason.

Custom Action Type 7
Custom Action Type 23

It's a trap! Don't use nested installs. Chain your MSI's with your deployment tool or use a setup.exe.

IT IS NOT A TRAP!

If you know how it works and must use it then it's okey, but I do not recommend nested MSI.
Information about it is for everyone, don't u agree?

But Microsoft recommends not using Nested MSI's in production and for good reason.
