Yes, you can test:

     (condition-case nil
         (substitute-in-file-name "C$/")
         ...add the advice...))

writing it this way is also a good way to document why the advice is used.
Documentation in the form of code has the advantage over comments that it
doesn't have the same tendency to go stale.
