PyQt Designer can't load Dll Plugin , Qt Designer loads it fine

  • I have the Qt 5.3.1 suite installed on Win7 32-bit. In Qt Creator I generated a .dll plugin that loads fine using Qt Designer.

    Using the same computer, I then installed Python 3.4.1 and PyQt 5.3.1, and copied the above dll into: C:\Python34\Lib\site-packages\PyQt5\plugins\designer

    However, when I open PyQt Designer (Help->About Plugins), it says it cannot load the dll library ("The specified module could not be found.")

    Since PyQt doesn't come with Creator, I assume I have to modify the dll build process (using Qt Creator) to something that PyQt Designer can recognize, but what?
