>Hi,

I am fairly new to python. Coming from a world of IDEs, I wanted a
fancier one than IDLE. Hence, I downloaded eric4. When I tried to
compile it, it asked for PyQt4, which I again downloaded (exe for
Windows XP) and installed it. It seems to be properly installed as I can
invoke "import PyQt4" from IDLE without any complaints.

However, when I try to install eric4, I am getting the following error:

D:\Python26\eric4-4.2.2a>python install.py
Sorry, please install PyQt4.
Error: Module use of python25.dll conflicts with this version of Python.

So, won't eric4 work with python 2.6? I have searched on the net for
this, but am unable to find any solution.

I am new to python, so please excuse if this has an obvious solution.
Thanks.

OS: Windows XP SP2.
Unfortunately when a new release comes out package authors don't always
rush to meet the demand for their software by providing a release for
the new version.

If the download site doesn't specifically offer a 2.6-compatible version
that's likely the problem here, sorry :(
PyQt supported Python 2.6 on the day it was released.

A snapshot of the PyQt Windows installer for Python 2.6 can be downloaded
from the same page as you downloaded the installer for Python 2.5.
