On OS X, they either go in Wing IDE.app/Contents/MacOS or in 
~/.wingide2.  In the finder, you can bring up the context menu for the 
Wing IDE application and select 'Show Package Contents' to display the 
directories inside the application.  Alternatively, you can use tar in a 
terminal window to unpack the patch.

On all platforms, the pathnames of the Wing IDE install directory and 
the user settings directory are available in the about box.
