From the NumPy 1.3.0b1 announcement:
Arch option for windows binary
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Automatic arch detection can now be bypassed from the command line for
the superpack installed:
numpy-1.3.0-superpack-win32.exe /arch=nosse
will install a numpy which works on any x86, even if the running
computer supports SSE set.
