Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand your question.

If you mean that you have an EXE which extracts and runs several MSI, then no, do NOT re-capture. Make any customisations you need via a transform, using Wise's InstallTailor tool, for each.

OK, so let me guess again...

You have an EXE which does some installation tasks but it also extracts and executes some MSIs?

In that case:
- run the EXE on your packaging box. When the various MSIs appear in your %TEMP% folder, copy them somewhere, then rename them using easy-to-remember names.
- restore your packaging box to its state before you ran the EXE
- run the various MSIs
- NOW capture the EXE.

This way, your capture won't include the running of these MSIs, because Windows Installer will see their installed state and therefore do nothing.
