I second this issue (Win 7/32). However, the opposite
case. I have pvengine32-sse2.exe and the created shortcuts pointed to
pvengine-sse2.exe.

July 2016 and the same problem is still there (Windows XP and POV-Ray 3.7).
Anyone who can't figure out the relatively easy fix will not be able to install
and run the program.
