Unable to return Binance Spot account balances from DLL


I tried fetching total Balance from Binance API in C# using glitch100/BinanceDotNet library with some modifications (like converting those data members from private to public static)

The purpose of this is to be called by an MQL5 function for MT5 usage

My C# code for the DLL is somewhat like this:

using System;
using System.Text;
using RGiesecke.DllExport;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Threading;
using System.IO.Pipes;
using System.IO;
using BinanceExchange.API.Client;

namespace BinanceAPIConnectMetaTrader
    class Program

        public static string DataServerReturn = null;

        [DllExport("APIFetchTotalFreeBalance", CallingConvention = CallingConvention.StdCall)]
        public static IntPtr APIFetchTotalFreeBalance(int _AccountType, IntPtr _ApiKey, IntPtr _SecretKey)
            if (_AccountType == 0)
                BinanceExchange.API.Endpoints.APIPrefix = "https://api.binance.com/api";
                BinanceExchange.API.Endpoints.WAPIPrefix = "https://api.binance.com/wapi";
                BinanceExchange.API.Websockets.AbstractBinanceWebSocketClient.BaseWebsocketUri = "wss://stream.binance.com:9443/ws";
                BinanceExchange.API.Websockets.AbstractBinanceWebSocketClient.CombinedWebsocketUri = "wss://stream.binance.com:9443/stream?streams";
                BinanceExchange.API.Endpoints.APIPrefix = "https://testnet.binance.vision/api";
                BinanceExchange.API.Endpoints.WAPIPrefix = "https://testnet.binance.vision/wapi";
                BinanceExchange.API.Websockets.AbstractBinanceWebSocketClient.BaseWebsocketUri = "wss://testnet.binance.vision/ws";
                BinanceExchange.API.Websockets.AbstractBinanceWebSocketClient.CombinedWebsocketUri = "wss://testnet.binance.vision/stream?streams";

            decimal total_free_balance = 0.0M;
            string apiKey = new MqlString(_ApiKey).Get();
            string secretKey = new MqlString(_SecretKey).Get();

            //Initialise the general client with config
            var client = new BinanceClient(new ClientConfiguration()
                ApiKey = apiKey,
                SecretKey = secretKey,

                client.GetAccountInformation(3500).Result.Balances.ForEach(k =>
                   total_free_balance += k.Free;
            catch (Exception ex)
                string str = "Exception from dll : " + ex.Message;
                return Marshal.StringToHGlobalAuto(str.ToString());
            IntPtr ret = Marshal.StringToHGlobalAuto(total_free_balance.ToString());
            return ret;


    public class StreamString
        private Stream ioStream;
        private UnicodeEncoding streamEncoding;

        public StreamString(Stream ioStream)
            this.ioStream = ioStream;
            streamEncoding = new UnicodeEncoding();

        public string ReadString()
            int len;
            len = ioStream.ReadByte() * 256;
            len += ioStream.ReadByte();
            byte[] inBuffer = new byte[len];
            ioStream.Read(inBuffer, 0, len);

            return streamEncoding.GetString(inBuffer);

        public int WriteString(string outString)
            byte[] outBuffer = streamEncoding.GetBytes(outString);
            int len = outBuffer.Length;
            if (len > UInt16.MaxValue)
                len = (int)UInt16.MaxValue;
            ioStream.WriteByte((byte)(len / 256));
            ioStream.WriteByte((byte)(len & 255));
            ioStream.Write(outBuffer, 0, len);

            return outBuffer.Length + 2;

    class MqlString
        private readonly IntPtr _pointer;

        public MqlString(IntPtr pointer)
            _pointer = pointer;

        public string Get()
            int size;

            for (int i = 0; ; i += 2)
                if (Marshal.ReadByte(_pointer, i) == 0)
                    size = i;

            byte[] bytes = new byte[size];

            for (int i = 0; i < size; i++)
                bytes[i] = Marshal.ReadByte(_pointer, i);

            return Encoding.Unicode.GetString(bytes);

  1. When this function is called, then the exception is caught & the message is displayed as follows:
Total free balance = Exception from dll : One or more errors occurred.
  1. After removing try keyword and its braces and commenting out the inside of catch block, when this function is called, then some funny runtime exception is displayed at MT5 side log messages as follows:

00: 0x00007FFE51603B29

I am really clueless about what this is & how to resolve it.

This code is the problematic part (but it is working fine when built as EXE as in the GitHub page of glitch100/BinanceDotNet/BinanceExchange.Console/ExampleProgram.cs)

client.GetAccountInformation(3500).Result.Balances.ForEach(k =>
    total_free_balance += k.Free;
