From Winter '16 on, Lightning Components is automatically enabled so you will not see an "Enable Lightning Components" checkbox in setup. However, Lightning App Builder will say that Lightning Components is disabled by default and will not show any custom components or AppExchange components in the org.

You need to create a custom domain under Settings | My Domain and deploy it to all users. Once this is deployed, you'll be able to see Lightning Components in the App Builder, navigate to standalone apps using components, or test them from Dev Console.


I have registered with the pre-release winter 16 link for developer and enterprise edition. But not able to find the link to switch to lightning experience.
