Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow.

What is the proper way to handle large numbers such as these? The code below causes a crash on the line:
 i = CInt(strString)

I have tried i as type Long as well.
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim i As Int64 = Nothing
        Dim strString As String = Nothing
 
        Me.Label1.Text = "999,999,999,999"
        strString = (Me.Label1.Text).Replace(",", "")
        i = CInt(strString)
    End Sub

Dim i As Long= Nothing
Dim strString As String = Nothing
 
Me.Label1.Text = "999,999,999,999"
strString = (Me.Label1.Text).Replace(",", "")
i = CInt(strString)

No, Long causes the crash as well.

Try:
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim i As Int64 = Nothing
        Dim strString As String = Nothing
 
        Me.Label1.Text = "999,999,999,999"
        strString = (Me.Label1.Text).Replace(",", "")
        i = Convert.ToInt64(strString)
    End Sub
