Hi! I'm new to Spyder and PyQt5. I had a problem with the kernel crashing with the message - "QCoreApplication:exec: The event loop is already running". After checking out https://github.com/spyder-ide/spyder/wiki/How-to-run-PyQt-applications-within-Spyder , the kernel stopped giving the message that an exception has occurred and the kernel stopped crashing, etc. However, when I run that code (the pyqt5 one), nothing appears. I have already set the graphical backend to "automatic". Could someone explain why it won't work? Cheers!
Spyder 3.3.1 btw

@shaanann Does the code work when you run it outside Spyder? Did you check that there is maybe a window appearing behind the Spyder window?
