Hi guys,

I wanted to run a very old pyqt5 project and after installing all deps and
latest PyQt5==5.15.7 I've realized at that time I was having some .bat
files that'd compile resources like:

pyqrc --include-files=*.png images > resources.qrc
pyrcc5 -o resources.py resources.qrc

When I've installed all the requirements of that project on a
win10/virtualenv using Python 3.10.1  on win32 I've realized these qt tools
(pyqrc/pyrcc5) are not shipped with pyqt5 anymore.

So, could anyone please give me advice? I've tried unsuccessfully using
pyqt5-tools, crash below:

$ pip install pyqt5-tools

      During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Could anyone please give me advice where to find these tools?
