2013.4 Licensing - Write_bitstream fails with "ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: Your license for device 'xc7z015' is setup for evaluation or trial purposes only..."

Description

The following license error occurs during write_bitstream when I run a design using the new Zynq 7015 part in the Vivado tool:

INFO: [Common 17-349] Got license for feature 'Implementation' and/or device 'xc7z015'
INFO: [Common 17-83] Releasing license: Implementation
ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: Your license for device 'xc7z015' is setup for evaluation or trial purposes only. Bitstream creation is disabled for this license. Please run the Xilinx License Configuration Manager for assistance in determining which features and devices are licensed for your system.

Solution

In Vivado 2013.3, this error is expected as Zynq 7z015 is a pre-production device. A BitGen license for this part is required. The license should include the x7z015_bitstream component.

In Vivado 2013.4, the Zynq 7z015 is a public access device and should not need a special license for bitstream generation in 2013.4. For this issue, the attached tactical patch is available.
