Compiling standalone PyQt5 exe with pyinstaller -- not finding QtWebEngineProcess.exe



  • Hello,
    I'm using PyQt5.7 with Python 2.7 using this install method: https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/pipermail/pyqt/2016-December/038450.html

    The trouble is that the self-contained file seems to reference the QtWebEngineProcess.exe installed in C:Qt instead of the one within the build file.
    I will get an error 'Could not find QtWebEngineProcess.exe' if I try to run the self-contained build on another machine that does not have Qt installed.
    I've tried editing the qt.conf file within the build but I can't seem to break the link with the one installed at C:\Qt.

    Does anyone have any experience compiling PyQ5 with Python 2.7 and getting QtWebEngineWidgets to work?

    Best,
    -Mark
