Thanks, I've found another solution which is working for me

    Public Shared Function encryptpass(ByVal string_in As String) As String
        Dim DES As New TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider
        DES.Key = KEY_192
        DES.IV = IV_192
        Dim cs As Byte() = DES.EncryptValue _
        Dim f As String = Convert.ToBase64String(cs, 0, cs.Length)
        Return f
    End Function
    Public Shared Function decryptpass(ByVal input As String) As String
        Dim DES As New TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider
        DES.Key = KEY_192
        DES.IV = IV_192
        Dim buffer As Byte() = Convert.FromBase64String(input)
        Dim cs2 As Byte() = DES.DecryptValue(buffer)
        Return ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(cs2, 0, CInt(cs2.Length))
    End Function
