[PyQt] Problems running SIP with py3.5.1 virtual env and vstudio 2015

Yeah, sure, I've obviously read the errors before posting here... not sure
how your answer will help me.

Consider this thread closed. I've discovered swig as a good alternative. It
has a great documentation, tons of examples showcasing almost all features
to get started pretty fast and it works out of the box, creating a c++
wrapper of large libraries seems like a child game using swig.

I don't doubt sip is a great tool (shipping such an awesome framework like
pyqt is a clear evidence of that) but it looks to me the community/support
around it is small in comparison and examples are really minimal. It's a
shame, I've seen this happening a lot, really great tools like this one
which don't know how to build community around it. Ask yourself why numpy,
pandas, matplotlib or other libraries are so popular and sip is not (look
at python-sip tag on SO).

Hopefully this will get better in the future, for the time being I give up
on sip :)

Anyway, thanks for your time.
