You can alter your table and if you now your columns is only running a query like

ALTER TABLE dbo.Your_Table
ADD CONSTRAINT PK_Your_Table 
PRIMARY KEY (COL1, COL2)

On VB.NET
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
        Dim Cnx As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Your connection  String")
        With cmd
            .Connection = Cnx
            .CommandText = "ALTER TABLE dbo.Your_Table ADD CONSTRAINT PK_Your_Table PRIMARY KEY (COL1, COL2,COL3)"
            .CommandType = CommandType.Text
            Cnx.Open()
            Try
                cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
            Catch ex As Exception

            End Try
            Cnx.Close()
        End With
