This checkbox is deactivated if there are no scripting language plugins
installed (as, in that case, there is no point in this option anyway).
You can double-check this from Scripts > Scripting TeXworks > About
Scripts...: if it only shows "QtScript" but not "Lua" then the lua
scripting plugin is not installed.

I don't know if the MiKTeX devs provide the lua plugin or not, but it is
included in the version available from http://www.tug.org/texworks/ as
mentioned by the other posters.
