How to extract dotnetfx from setup.exe?

My application requires .NET Framework, so I included dotnetfx.exe into installation (Build your release -> .NET Framework Location -> Extract From Setup.exe). This works properly - .NET is installed when it is not present on target machine. But I want also copy the original redsitributable "dotnetfx.exe" into installation directory of my application (my application need this redistributable package "as it is"). Is there possibility to extract dotnetfx.exe during installation using custom action or something else? I don't want to add dotnetfx.exe into Files of my setup because then it will be twice in installation (in setup.exe and in nested MSI file - 2x 20 MB).
