System.PlatformNotSupportedException for SHA512

    Why does VB 2008 show the following error on my system :
    The specified cryptographic algorithm is not supported on this platform.
    when I try to use SHA-384 or SHA-512 hashing algos ??

    I have some other programs written with VB 2008 or C# 2008, which use SHA-512 hashing (I know this through Reflector), but run perfectly fine on my system !

    I don't understand this.

    I would be really grateful, if someone could help me.

    I don't know why I am facing this with SHA-384 and SHA-512 only.
    SHA1 and SHA256 work fine.
