It should definitely still work, here's the relevant code from the 4.2.0 
release (nt_clockstuff.c):

         /************ Added back in 2003-01-26 *****************/
	/* read the current system time, and write it back to
            force CMOS update: */
	{
		SYSTEMTIME st;
		GetSystemTime(&st);
		SetSystemTime(&st);
	}
}
