Well, that will be fixed in the next release. Unfortunately Phil removed that 
file from the installer.

Any help warmly appreciated ...


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.
