In my script I have used try and catch, what is the difference when I place $ErrorActionPreference = "Stop" inside the Try braces or if I place it in the start of the script before try braces.
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.
