” Metadata generation failed” . I keep getting this message as i try to install pyqt6_tools. I need help please

I have python 3.12 installed in my windows 10 and this is the error :

 Installing build dependencies ... done
  Getting requirements to build wheel ... done
  Preparing metadata (pyproject.toml) ... error
  error: subprocess-exited-with-error

  × Preparing metadata (pyproject.toml) did not run successfully.
  │ exit code: 1
  ╰─> [26 lines of output]
error: metadata-generation-failed

× Encountered error while generating package metadata.
╰─> See above for output.

note: This is an issue with the package mentioned above, not pip.

pls help me solve this

If you mean this project, the issue has already been encountered by a few others and reported. The project apparently does not support Python 3.12, and in fact does not advertise support for 3.10 or 3.11 either (although it may work there).

so you mean i should install other pyhton version or what ?

You could ask the author if the package to fix their bug.

Also you could ask for help on the pyqt mailing list. See PyQt/TheMailingList - Python Wiki
