Yes, do it all the time. Lots of questions come to mind. 

1. Did you verify the file is actually there via batch file (or similar)?
2. Is it possible something is deleting the files before the WiX tools run?
3. Have you tried removing the preprocessor variable and hard coding the path to remove the variable from being part of the problem?
4. Have you tried using base paths instead of specifying the exact path to the file in the .wxs file?

Basically, need to investigate the build process. Something is special about your world.

In WiX v4, the paths searched are printed out when the file cannot be found, which is really helpful in this sort of case. So, something to look forward there.

Has anyone successfully built a WiX project as part of a github actions workflow?

Please look at the details of the problem I am having here:
