Select the light and press quickly "AA" to open the light options and make sure "cast shadows" is on. Click the layer you want to cast shadows, it has to have have 3D enabled, then press "AA" quickly to open the material options and make sure "cast shadows" is on. Finally select the shadow catcher layer, enable 3D and press "aa" quickly to make sure accept shadows is on.

I made a simple project, so you can see the setup.
