Please define "not working". What is happening? Do you see an error message?
Not sure though how it interprets the beginning dot in this context. Have you tried to just put "test.shtml" as path?
I have used SSI on IIS 7 and it worked fine.

Maybe you should check is "Parent Paths" are enabled for the IIS Server?
The "Parent Paths" maybe why your having problems.
Also the changes from the Blog link in your post may be adding complications.

Do you have other mappings on that folder?
If you enable Failed Request Tracing, we would see if the request goes thru the SSI module. That will tell us if that is the problem.

Why is all this relevent?
If I run an html file with SSI from the inetpub/wwwroot folder, it works perfectly. However, there is a subfolder called "midtier", which is were most of the files/folders are located. This "midtier" directory is directly tied to Tomcat/BMC Remedy. So, when
I run an html file with SSI from within the "midtier" directory, for some reason, it appears the SSI include command doesn't even get a chance to be evaluated by IIS -- it never makes it across from Tomcat/BMC Remedy. I called up BMC for tech support and,
while he tried, he couldn't figure it out.
Question? Is there a way I can trace or track traffic running between IIS and Apache Tomcat? Maybe that would allow me to get to the bottom of this. Thank you.
Lastly, to address the Failed Request Tracing, I had turned it on and I didn't even see any requests for SSI. The HTTP proxy, Fiddler, verified this, as well, from the client-side. As I said, the SSI include appears to never make it across the pond, from
Tomcat/BMC Remedy to IIS
Update: I believe IIS is talking to Tomcat via the JK connector
