The problem seems to be resolved! Unsure why exactly. I'm now on a new PC and
upgraded to:

Python 3.7.0 64-bit
Nuitka 64-bit

and calling:

py -m nuitka --standalone --recurse-all --disable-dll-dependency-cache
--windows-disable-console --plugin-enable=qt-plugins

Feel free to close.

My PC blew up and now I'm on holidays, but 
appreciate the support and will certainly get 
back to you soon.

No feedback?

Can you try to use the Windows specific features that disable caching of DLL 
dependencies. I think that must be it. When you add or remove that option, it 
changes the DLLs used by the main program, but that may still be cached, and 
then bad results.

I think that is what is happing.

The same behaviour is seen when specifically using mingw-w64

That is to say version Nuitka Windows build 3.6 64-bit (

I tried building on a fresh Windows install, this time using Visual Studio 2017.
Compilation succeeded and the .exe created using the command:

%localappdata%\programs\python\python36\python -m nuitka --standalone
--recurse-all --plugin-enable=qt-plugins

However, running it gives:
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PyQt5.sip'
This is despite sip.pyd sitting right next to minimal_example.exe in the .dist

Copying sip.pyd to the PyQt5 subfolder results in a new error:
  File "C:\Users\Sam\Desktop\minimal_example.dist\", line 2,
in <module>
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 971, in _find_and_load
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 955, in _find_and_load_unlocked
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 656, in _load_unlocked
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap>", line 626, in _load_backward_compatible
ValueError: PyCapsule_GetPointer called with incorrect name

Python 3.6.6 64-bit
Nuitka Windows build 3.6 64-bit

MinGW is not supported, only MinGW64 is. Checkout user manual about how that is 
not about bits. MinGW is just less windows compatible.

Yes, in my case it certainly isn't producing the .exe file (and many .pyd files). I 
have MingW install so presume that is being used. Is there a way to check?

Do you realize that the ".exe" lives in the ".dist" folder?

Your example of course works for me. Are you using MSVC or MinGW64. 
Unfortunately it's not easy for --version to make that output.

I am confused about you renaming "python.exe", why would you?
msg2458 (view) Author: morefigs Date: 2018-08-06.23:04:44
If --windows-disable-console is not used, but pythonw.exe is renamed to python.exe, then the exact same behaviour (no .exe, etc) is seen.

When running Nuitka on a minimal PyQt5 application (see no .exe file is generated if the --windows-disable-console flag is used. 

The following command results in no executable file generated, and only 18 .pyd files in the .dist folder:
%localappdata%\programs\python\python36-32\scripts\nuitka.bat --standalone --recurse-all --windows-disable-console --plugin-enable=qt-plugins

The following command results in an executable file being generated (but also shows the console window when run), along with 90 .pyd and .dll files in the .dist folder:
%localappdata%\programs\python\python36-32\scripts\nuitka.bat --standalone --recurse-all --plugin-enable=qt-plugins
