Thanks, Kishor June 16, 2017 at 3:18 pm #73066 Olaf SoykParticipant The difference is the time you set the preference. In the start it will be valid for all command that come after it. BTW: You don't have to use $ErrorActionPreference. It's enough when you put the parameter -ErrorAction Stop to the cmdlet in the try block.
