SDL2.dll not installed

System Information
Windows 7 x64

Blender Version
Broken: 2.78
Worked: 2.77a

Short description of error
After installing the new release over my existing installation, blender would not start but produce an error that SDL2.dll is missing.
I manually downloaded it from https://www.libsdl.org/download-2.0.php, put it in my blender installation directory, and now it seems to work (at least starting was successfull).

If needed, I can try any steps needed on my PC or serve additional information.
