I'll do this:

- during install, allow to chose SSE2 or non-SSE (SSE2 by default, with
some brief explanation)

- if SSE2 is selected, the .exe is executed for a check and if it fails, the
pop-up tells the user to reinstall (re-run the installer) using non-SSE exes.

Sounds good enough to me, I'll use for the next build.
