14.1 PlanAhead - Archive Project with -force option gives : ERROR: [Common-70] Application Exception: project already exists with this alias

Description

I try to archive a PlanAhead project with the command:

       archive_project ./XX.zip -force.

Although the -force option is used in order to over write an older ("Stale") version of the project, PlanAhead tool generates the error message:

 
ERROR: [Common-70] Application Exception: project already exists with this alias
ERROR: [Coretcl-16] (archive_project): Received exception from project save_as

Solution

The archive_project command with -force option does not work properly in PlanAhead 14.1 tools.

In PlanAhead 14.1 tools, the existing project.zip file should first be removed or renamed before the archive operation.

This issue had been fixed in PlanAhead 14.2 tools.
