If you have a ported patch.exe, I can tell you the exact command to
invoke it, after you save the patch to a file.

No.  You should delete the line prefixed with "-" and then add all the
lines prefixed with "+".  Then byte-compile the modified server.el,
restart Emacs, and see if the problem is gone.
