There are 4 things you have to do which are listed on page 62 of the manual

1.  The Option in FSX "Aircraft casts shadows on itself" must be selected

2. The aircraft must be built with the FSX SDK and must have an interior model.

3. A Flag to enable VC Shadows must be set on in the interior model OR the fsx.cfg [Display] Option ForceVCShadowMap must be set to 1 (the latter is more useful).  If you are unsure how to set this option in fsx.cfg then use the fsx editor shown on pg 37 and just tick the option Force VC Shadows

4. The model must avoid certain techniques which prevent the shadows working. The option Force VC Walls corrects for one of these techniques and so may improve VC shadows for some aircraft.

If you find that after checking points 1 thru 3 that you do not see shadows even with Force VC Walls set then it almost certainly the case that the model uses a technique that DX10SF cannot correct for.

Always start testing with default Cessna, when you have shadows working there then move on to other aircraft.
