It could be possible if the patch matches the files *exactly*. But many
times that's not the case. TortoiseMerge can then fetch the files in
their 'original' state from the repository and apply the patch that way.
But if your file/folder is not part of a working copy, TortoiseMerge
can't fetch those 'older' files from the repo.

That's why the context menu is hidden for non-working-copies.

But you can open TortoiseMerge, and in the "Open" dialog you can set the
patchfile and the path where to apply it.
