I agree: the problem may be with your OS. The only other suggestion
I have is to use <C-V><S-Insert> in Insert mode. This should insert
whatever character vim sees as <S-Insert>. When I try it, I get
"<S-Insert>" (ten characters). This is using gvim 5.7 on W95. If you get
something hard to identify, try :help ga.
