2015.4 Updatemem - Updatemem overwrites an existing bitstream without the -force option being required

Description

I have tried to run the Updatemem command twice, but I accidentally left the same output bitstream name both times.

I expect Updatemem to error out with the message that the bitstream exists and to use the -force flag if I really wanted to do this.

However, Updatemem writes the bitstream without the -force flag being required.

Solution

The -force flag should be required in order to overwrite an existing bitstream file.

This issue will be fixed in Vivado 2016.1.
