Nope, i never have used that tool, and im not sure if it will work cause as i said bootloader only opens for a few seconds
If that is the case, than you probably don't have proper drivers for Mi 5 installed, download MIFLASH UNLOCK 3.5.1108.44 from here https://xiaomifirmware.com/downloads/download-mi-unlock-3-5-1108-44/
Double click on MiUsbDriver and install fastboot driver. Now as Keno_I said you can try to install original fastboot rom via flash tool or latest TWRP recovery from cmd prompt on your computer.
