We use the pde headless build, called by an ant script, to build an RCP Client on Windows and Linux.
Using the GUI export in the produc file resulting in an crrect Client (including the native launcher with configured icon and name).
But using the headless build the navtive laucher files are not build. Not the .exe file in windos build and not the natvie launcher in the linux Client. Does anyone know how to get a Client build headless including these natvie Launchers ?

Thanks for all hints!

I have encountered the same issue with Eclipse 4.5.2 as well. I saw few old posts and the mentioned fixes like giving a unique name to the product and check "this product includes naive launcher artifacts" is already taken care. BUt I am still facing this issue.
I am trying to create an executor file for both 32bit windows as well as 64 bit. I am able to see the executor for 32 bit but for 64 bit, pDE builds are not generating that.
Any quick help is highly appreciated as we are stuck at this problem for a long time.

I am trying to generate a PDE headless build, but eclipse is not generating any launcher file.

I am using following Eclipse Version :

Eclipse IDE for RCP and RAP Developers
Version: Photon Release (4.8.0)
Build id: 20180619-1200

This is my command to generate the build

$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar $ECLIPSE_LOCATION/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.5.0.v20180512-1130.jar -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -buildfile $BUILD_FILE -Dbuilder=$BUILD_CONFIG_LOCATION -DarchivePrefix=build -DbuildDirectory=$BUILD_LOCATION -DbaseLocation=$baseLocation -Dproduct=$product -DbuildId=$buildId -Dconfigs="$configs" -DarchiveNamePrefix=$archiveNamePrefix -DjavacSource=$javaVersion -DjavacTarget=$javaVersion
