When using the Rnd Function in VB you can get the same sequence of random numbers by calling Rnd with a negative argument (Rnd(-1)), followed by Randoize with a positive numeric value (Randomize(n)) , where n is any positive number.
How can you achieve the same when using RNGCryptoServiceProvider?

I don't think that is possible.  Unpredictablity and unrepeatabity are the essential parts of the service.
