System.PlatformNotSupportedException for SHA512
 
Why does VB 2008 show the following error on my system :
Code: Errors

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.
