Qt and PyQt work fine with 64 bit windows but I've been unable to get a
working Qt so far with mingw-w64. I've had success with visual studio 2005
and could provide installers. I will need a few days though as I am busy
with other things atm.
Unless it's a very small trivial project I would think the effort of compiling
Qt and PyQt is well worth the effort compared to using wxPython. I haven't
looked a wxPython in a while though...
