Did you try turning on raytrace shadows?...

Raytraced shadows won't work with volume light. Shadow maps don't transmit transparent color. So I guess you'd have to fake it somehow, like creating hundreds of duplicates of the window plane with low opacity and the window color in self-illumination. Also depends on your viewing angle...
