It is hard to say what the exact issue is with the information given.

The error is stating that a Tcl command has more arguments than expected for a given command or switch within the command structure.

The most common accidental cause of this that I know of is the inclusion of a backslash character without being properly escaped.

See "https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/46668.html" for more details on that.

What is the command that you are running?
