There isn't a PyQt5 for Python 3.5 as I discovered about six hours ago 
when I did exactly what you've just done :)  Assuming that you get a 
version of PyQt that matches with a Python version, I'd assume that 
you'd drop it into the appropriate lib\site-packages, but I'll happily 
stand corrected on that one.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
