The first, simplest way is to run YSFlight from a non-Unix file system such as VFAT, ExFAT, FAT32, or NTFS. These file systems are not case-sensitive and although some are case-preserving they do not require the addons for YSFlight to have the correct case usage as Ext* (and similar) file systems do.
If this however isn't an option for you there is a work around.
The first thing to do is copy the entire text from the LST file into this converter here. This will automatically convert the text to completely lowercase. Then simply copy and paste it back into the LST, overwriting everything.
The second step is simply to follow the directions outlined on this page to convert the directory tree and file names to all lowercase. Then you *should* be able to run YS without case errors being thrown up for addons.
PLEASE NOTE: Any links in DAT or DNM files do have to be changed manually and hopefully a way of doing so automatically will become available in due course
