This interface should not be implemented by cmdlets and providers. Instead, cmdlets and providers should call the following methods.
For cmdlets, call one of the following methods:
For providers, call one of the following methods.
Windows PowerShell snap-ins can implement custom exception classes that implement. However, it is generally preferable for cmdlets and providers to communicate error records using the methods listed previously, rather than the snap-in throwing an exception that implements .
