I tried to install PyQt4 via the installer on an Windows machine as a normal 
user. The installation worked fine most of the way. However, it tried to 
install the menu for "All users". That failed due to missing permissions and 
the install stopped. I don't know what it would do therafter.

When I tried to import a PyQt4 package in Python (from PyQt4 import QtCore) I 
got an error message because loading the DLL failed. I had to copy all the 
DLLs from ...\PyQt4\bin into ...\PyQt4.

What is going on here? I would expect PyQt4 to installable as a non-priveleged 
user as well.

Kind Regards,
