"ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found."

The exact same issue as explained here: 
https://github.com/pyqt/python-qt5/wiki/Updating-the-repository#bundling. How 
is it to know where to find the DLLs? I see them all generated in the 
build /release folders, but they are not copied to the correct location 
after nmake install? The wheels version has an actual __init__.py file 
pointing to the Qt directory containing all those dlls. Whereas my 
__init__.py file doesn't have that at all. You mentioned only the 
commercial version does this for you. So for the non commercial version, 
we are just expected to know how to manually copy the DLL files to the 
correct location? I must be missing something or doing something wrong.
