I’ve put the example on github for reference (https://github.com/jazzycamel/PyTestObject). This proves (to me at least!) that my basic approach is correct and that my issue is with linking to the Qt libraries and not with the actual build process.

What are the prebuilt PyQt5 bindings built with (Visual Studio?) and if this is not mingw32 would this explain my ‘missing procedure’ issue? I.e. do I need to build my bindings with the same compiler as PyQt5 if I’m not already?

The binaries are built with the same compilers used to build the corresponding version of Python - MSVC 2008 for Python v2 and MSVC 2010 for Python v3.
