[wix-users] Custom Actions are getting excluded from MSI

I have an existing Visual Studio WiX project. It has Custom Actions defined
in a separate CustomAction.wxs file. But the custom actions are not getting
called, although the conditions are correct. After a lot of thinking,I
opened up the MSI in Orca and found that these Custom Actions are missing
in the Custom Action table.

I cannot add a CustomActionRef element since the Product element is
implemented in a separate framework and referenced as a NuGet package. I
don't know how to ensure CAs are included in the MSI and getting called.
Can anyone please help?
