$ py --help
    usage: [-h] [-i sublime_text] [-v build number] [-a arch] [-o os] [-u]

    Sublime Patcher

    optional arguments:
        -h, --help show this help message and exit
        -c, --compatibility Displays supported platforms
        -i sublime_text, --input sublime_text Sublime Text 3 executable file
        -v build number, --version build number Sublime Text 3 build number
        -a arch, --arch arch Architecture
        -o os, --os os Operating system
        -u, --unregister Un-register Sublime Text 3

For example if i want to register my copy of Sublime Text 3 build 3170 on Windows 10 x64 i'll use:

$ python -i "D:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3\sublime_text.exe" -v 3170 -a x64 -o win
    [Sublime Patcher] [INFO]: D:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3\sublime_text.exe
    [Sublime Patcher] [DBUG]: Version: 3170 | Arch: x64 | Sys: winx64
    [Sublime Patcher] [INFO]: Sublime Text 3 - Build 3170 - has been registered.

In fact --os is not needed. Your OS is automatically detected, but if you want to patch a file for another OS it might be useful.
