Vivado - TK_tunnel: invalid command name "wm"


In the Tk Tcl shell window I see the following:

  Starting server...
  == This Launch Script:
  == Repository directory:
  server starting - host: mymachinename - ip: - socket: sock7
  server listeners are now running
  invalid command name "wm"
  Server terminated, shell will close in 10 seconds.


The wm command could not be found on the server. 

This usually indicates your Tcl shell does not have Tk installed.

To work around this, you can run the launch server command and point to a Tcl shell that has Tk installed:

tclapp::xilinx::tk_tunnel::launch_server /opt/tcl/bin/tclsh8.5
