Convert vbscript function to C#

I need to convert the following vb script function to C# to be used in a new application.
Function EX(ByRef x, p, m)
    y = 1
    Do While p > 0
        Do While (p / 2) = Int((p / 2))
            x = (x * x) - (Int((x * x) / m) * m)
            p = p / 2
        Loop
        y = (x * y) - (Int((x * y) / m) * m)
        p = p - 1
    Loop
    EX = y
End Function

This is my attempt, but it does not work correctly. The original returns y as a number less than 1000 and my conversion returns numbers in the millions and runs many more iterations of the inner loop.

       public int Ex(ref int x, int p, int m)
        {
            y = 1;
            do
            {
                do
                {
                    x = (x * x) - (((x * x) / m) * m);
                    p = p / 2;
                }
                while ((p % 2) == 0);
                y = (x * y) - (((x * y) / m) * m);
                p = p - 1;
            }
            while (p > 0);
            return y;
        }

I have attached another version of the vbscript function with logging statements and the logs it generated so you can see the data involved since they used no datatypes when it was written.

Function EX(ByRef x, p, m)
	logmessage "gis.asp: EX", "	Variables passed in: x = " & x & " p = " & p & " m = " & m
    y = 1
    i =1
    o =1
    Do While p > 0
        Do While (p / 2) = Int((p / 2))
            x = (x * x) - (Int((x * x) / m) * m)
            logmessage "gis.asp: EX", "		(x * x)" & (x * x) & " - (Int((x * x) / m)" & Int((x * x) / m) & " * m)" & (Int((x * x) / m) * m) & " = " & (x * x) - (Int((x * x) / m) * m)
            p = p / 2
            logmessage "gis.asp: EX", "		inner iteration"& i &": p/2 = " & p/2 & " p = " & p & " y = " & y & " x = " & x

        y = (x * y) - (Int((x * y) / m) * m)

    EX = y
End Function

That doesn't compile. Math can't be performed on the objects.

I have modified it to:

        public int Ex(ref int x, int p, int m)
        {
            int y = 1;
            while (p > 0)
            {
                while ((p / 2) == Convert.ToInt32(p/2))
                {
                    x = (x * x) - (Convert.ToInt32((x * x) / m) * m);
                    p = p / 2;
                }
                y = (x * y) - (Convert.ToInt32((x * y) / m) * m);
                p = p - 1;
            }

        }

It still doesn't work correctly.

It's fixed.

here's the functioning code..

x*x was overflowing the the int32 datatype and causing the number to go negative.

        public int Ex(ref Int64 x, Int64 p, Int64 m)
        {
            Int64 y = 1;
            while (p > 0)
            {
                while ((p % 2) == 0)
                {
                    x = (x * x) - (Convert.ToInt64((x * x) / m) * m);
                    p = p / 2;
                }
                y = (x * y) - (Convert.ToInt64((x * y) / m) * m);
                p = p - 1;
            }
            return (int)y;
        }
