Assuming you have cygwin installed:
1. open up a bash prompt;
2. cd to your boost/build/v2/tools directory;
3. type in the following:

    patch msvc.jam msvc_vc_express.diff

That will apply the patch (msvc_vc_express) to the specified file
(msvc.jam). If a diff file contains more than one file, cd to the
directory where it was created. Thus, if you see "tools/msvc.jam" or
something similar, you need to cd to build/v2. Then, just say:

    patch -i msvc_vc_express.diff

If you get stuck:

    patch --help
