You could install Cygwin and get the benefits of the
Unix commands.

Once you do that, you'll need to get the source for
CVS then apply the patch to that.

I think the real question is, "Why are you trying to
remove an existing edit?"  The patch I mentioned is
intended to be used to remove edits for users (or
sandboxes when coupled with yet another patch) that no
longer exist.

No, patch files are against the source.  You'll need
to get the source code for CVS (hence, the
open-sourceness of CVS), apply the patch, then build a
new executable.
