      Description

      When trying to install the PySide2 wheel onto another workstation than the one we used to compile PySide2 we get the following error message:

      This application failed to start because it could not find or load Qt platform plugin "windows" in "".

      I understand the "qwindows.dll" file usually goes in the "app.exe/platforms" folder but in PySide2 cases I'm not sure where to locate those files for Qt to find them.

      My only fix so far is to point the "QT_QPA_PLATFORM_PLUGIN_PATH" env to the "qwindows.dll" folder.

      Is there a way to avoid the issue, is this a bug ?
      Thanks !
