2013.1 Vivado - ERROR: [Common 17-165] Too many positional options when parsing '.filter.decrypt'


When I open my project, I get the following error:

ERROR: [Common 17-165] Too many positional options when parsing '<Project>.filter.decrypt', please type 'source -help' for usage info.


This error message will occur in Vivado 2013.1 projects if there is a space in the project path and the project uses Message Suppression.

The error is issued if the <project_name>.filter file (which is located in the project directory) is in a directory path with spaces.
This  file is used exclusively for Message Suppression, which was a new feature in 2013.1.

This issue has been fixed in Vivado 2013.2 design tools.
