Created by Steam user Silent, the patch requires a certain amount of computer smarts: You'll need to unzip the archive into your Hotline Miami 2 directory, then run the included batch file, which patches the startup file with a custom .DLL making it bootable under XP. The instructions recommend that the game be run in OpenGL mode rather than DirectX 9, which can only run in borderless windowed mode and is apparently very crash-prone. The patch will also have to be re-applied every time the game is updated. Since 4% of steam users still use XP, its a nice gesture.
