You can still use Lighting Effects if you run Photoshop in 32bit mode.

Here are instructions on how to run Photoshop in 32bit mode.

Lighting Effects is an aging plug-in that did not make the transition to 64bit. We plan to replace it with newer, better technology in the future - similar to how we stopped development on the Extract filter in Photoshop CS4 in order to focus on replacing it with the newer, non-destructive Refine Edge technology in Photoshop CS5.
