Could it be the case, that you have a mix of architectures installed, i.e. 
Python 32-bit and PyQt4 64-bit? Please note, that eric5 support for Qt5 is 
still marked as experimental. If you want to get a stable configuration 
please use the PyQt4 installer containing Qt 4.8.4.

I have downloaded PyQt4-4.10.1-gpl-Py3.3-Qt5.0.2-x64 which requests a 
phyton 3.3.x
So I installed Phyten 3.3.1 and PyQt4-4.10.1-gpl-Py3.3-Qt5.0.2-x64

Which leads to

G:\Download\Programmieren\eric5-5.3.2\eric5-5.3.2>python install.py
Checking dependencies
Python Version: 3.3.1
Found PyQt4
Sorry, please install QtHelp.
Error: DLL load failed: %1 ist keine zulässige Win32-Anwendung.
Press enter to continue...

So what do I have to do? Any explanation what do I have to take care of?


The easiest way on Windows is to use the PyQt4 windows installer. After 
that just run the eric install script.

Hello all,

I am struggling my way trough installing the ERIC Python IDE on Win8: and 
got stuck at PyQt-win-gpl-4.10 with following error message:

mingw32-make[1]: Entering directory 'G:/Download/Programmieren/PyQt-

makefile:30: warning: overriding recipe for target '.c.o'
makefile:27: warning: ignoring old recipe for target '.c.o'
Der Befehl "legacy" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
konnte nicht gefunden werden.
makefile:40: recipe for target 'install' failed
mingw32-make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
mingw32-make[1]: Leaving directory 'G:/Download/Programmieren/PyQt-
makefile:28: recipe for target 'install' failed
mingw32-make: *** [install] Error 2

I have been searching for hints how to resolve this problem but could not 
find anything.

Would be nice if someone could give me a info how I could proceed

python configure.py (python configure.py -p win32-g++)  -> both work

mingw32-make -> works fine
mingw32-make install -> throws the error posted above
