    C++ to C# Code Conversion problem

    Hi All,

    I am trying to convert the following C++ code to C#.

    pExportDir = (PIMAGE_EXPORT_DIRECTORY)GetPtrFromRVA(exportsStartRVA, pNTHeader, pImageBase);

    C# Syntax (Toggle Plain Text)
    template <class T> LPVOID GetPtrFromRVA( DWORD rva, T* pNTHeader, PBYTE imageBase ) // 'T' = PIMAGE_NT_HEADERS 
    	INT delta;
    	INT delta2;
    	pSectionHdr = GetEnclosingSectionHeader( rva, pNTHeader );
    	if ( !pSectionHdr )
    		return 0;
    	delta = (INT)(pSectionHdr->VirtualAddress-pSectionHdr->PointerToRawData);
    	delta2 =  (INT)( imageBase + rva - delta );
    	return (PVOID) ( imageBase + rva - delta );
    The above function will return a "ExportDirectory" structure. Which is working fine in C++. I wrote the same function in C# like below

    export_table = GetPtrFromRVA <IMAGE_EXPORT_DIRECTORY>(ExportTable_rva, _sectionHeaders[0], _dosHeader.e_magic);

    C# Syntax (Toggle Plain Text)
    public T GetPtrFromRVA<T>(UInt32 ExportTable_rva, IMAGE_SECTION_HEADER _sectionHeaders, UInt16 magic)
            IMAGE_SECTION_HEADER textsectionHeader;
            int delta;
            textsectionHeader = GetEnclosingSectionHeader(ExportTable_rva, _sectionHeaders);
            //if (textsectionHeader == null)
            //    return 0;
            delta = (int)(_sectionHeaders.VirtualAddress - _sectionHeaders.PointerToRawData);
            GCHandle handle = GCHandle.Alloc((magic + ExportTable_rva - delta), GCHandleType.Pinned);
            T theStructure = (T)Marshal.PtrToStructure(handle.AddrOfPinnedObject(), typeof(T));
            // Deallocate pointer
            return theStructure;
    Please see the attachments for the C++ and C# outputs i am getting....
