I ran into the same issue. There were some security improvements to DLL loading in Python 3.8 that broke for old versions of Windows. Windows 7 requires Windows Update KB2533623 to be installed as well.

maybe it's known to the mailing list, but I did not find any information about this:
It seems that PyQt5 currently doesn't work with Python 3.8.2 on a win7 machine.
I installed Python 3.8.2 (64bit) and PyQt5 with pip install pyqt5.
A simple import (python >> import PyQt5.QtCore) produced the following error:
python 3.8 pyQT ImportError: DLL load failed while importing QtCore:
As workaround I uninstalled python 3.8 and installed python 3.7. With python 3.7 everything works as expected.
