    If you search using https://www.bing.com/search?q=VBMath+Rnd+Clone, you will probably find a sample class which pretends to be an exact replacement. To check this, call Randomize with the same parameters in both cases, then check if the generated pseudo-random sequences are the same.

    Hi KenJutz,

    Maybe you could refer to the files: VBMath.cs and System.Random in .NET framework. The types of parameters and return values are different. Although, their implementation may have some same points, it seems that VBMath.Rnd doesn't utilize System.Random.

    Best Regards,
    Dylan
