Default vb.net Vs C#

I have converted following C# script to vb.net(http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/UniqueKeys.asp). Can anyone let me know vb.net script is same as c#? Why am asking is am not getting fixed length Unique ID.

private string GetUniqueKey()
  int maxSize = 8 ;
  char[] chars = new char[62];
  string a;
  a = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVW XYZ1234567890";
  chars = a.ToCharArray();
  int size = maxSize ;
  byte[] data = new byte[1];
  RNGCryptoServiceProvider crypto = new RNGCryptoServiceProvider();
  crypto.GetNonZeroBytes(data) ;
  size = maxSize ;
  data = new byte[size];
  StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder(size) ;
  foreach(byte b in data )
  { result.Append(chars[b % (chars.Length - 1)]); }
   return result.ToString();


    Function GetUniqueKey()
        Dim MaxSize As Integer = 8
        Dim chars(62) As Char
        Dim a As String = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVW XYZ1234567890"
        chars = a.ToCharArray()
        Dim size As Integer = MaxSize
        Dim data(size) As Byte
        Dim crypt As New RNGCryptoServiceProvider
        Dim result As New StringBuilder(MaxSize)
        Dim b As Byte
        For Each b In data
            result.Append(chars(b Mod (chars.Length - 1)))
        Return result.ToString()
    End Function
