8.2i Virtex-5 MAP - "ERROR:Map:168 - Output file <...> already exists..."


When running MAP from the DOS command line, the following errors occur: 


"ERROR:Map:168 - Output file "stopwatch_map.ncd" already exists. Please specify -w to overwrite." 

"ERROR:Map:151 - Problem encountered parsing the command line." 


Is the "-w" option required for all device families?


No, at the moment, the "-w" option is only required and supported for the Virtex-5 architecture. 


This option will also be documented in the Development System Reference Guide in a later release.
