CC trail? What are you trying to do?
I had after effect 5 but when I right click on my file on timeline to add this effect "create shapes from vector layers" it didn't work.
I downloaded "Adobe Creative Cloud/ After Effect CC trial" but still I can't use that effect (create shapes from vector layers). The question is how can I use this effect?

In order to use the "Create Shapes from Vector Layers" tool, you must have a layer selected in your timeline that contains vector information - an Adobe Illustrator file, for example.
Have you set up your project in this way, and do you have a layer selected?
