Hello, so im trying to use PyQt5 on my windows 7 but I might not be doing it right or something. So ive done pip install SIP and pip install pyqt5. Following this post, Ive done from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui, QtWidget and I should have a designer.exe somewhere for the QT Designer but I dont have that in my directory. So i don't know, am i missing a step? something i need to download?

To use qt creator with pyqt, here is the documentation


Qt is excellent, but honestly I think it it more suited to C++.

I have found the TKinter is actually extremely powerful, fwiw.
