QtWebKit not installing with PyQt5

Asked by InYong Chung on 2016-07-13

Hello, and thank you for all the work put into this project. We've been using it happily in our church community.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but here goes:
I'm trying to build the source using Windows, Python 3.5 64-bit and PyQt5, but whenever I install PyQt5, the check_dependency.py script fails on QtWebKit, and the project does not build because of the missing library.
Is there something that could be done to get QtWebKit separately?
I know the wiki said that Python 3.4 is recommended (I believe also 32-bit), but the PyQt5 download page only seems to offer the Python 3.5 version (I can't find an archive of older versions)

Thank you!

As of Qt6, QtWebKit is no longer packaged with Qt. Either install (Py)Qt 5.5, or you'll need to download and compile Qt and PyQt yourself.

Thanks Raoul Snyman, that solved my question.

Oh, just further to this, we are in the process of moving to QtWebEngine, the new browser engine in Qt5.6, but it's somewhat complicated.
