According to the screenshot some DLL cannot be found. Please make sure, that the 
Python interpreter used to install eric is the same used to install PyQt5, 
QScintilla and sip.

I get a "Sorry, please install PyQt5" message when running "python" even though 
PyQt5 is already installed.

- Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit
- Python 3.5.2
- Qt 5.80

Steps taken:
- Installed Qt 5.80.
- Installed QScintilla via "pip install QScintilla"; this installed dependencies sip & PyQt5.
- Ran "python" from the directory into which the eric6 download was unzipped.
