Unfortunately, if you use Moray, you have to (repeat: have to) use POV-Ray 
3.5. Moray has never been updated to work flawlessly with version 3.6. For a 
next version we have to wait until the POV-Ray team finds the time to 
integrate Moray more fully into the POV-Ray environment.

On the other hand, what you can do if you want to use version 3.6 or 3.7, is 
to open the .pov file exported by Moray into your favourite POV-Ray version 
and make changes there if you want to.

What I typically do quite often, is build basic scene blocks in Moray which 
I later include into a POV-Ray scene under Megapov for instance, taking care 
to adjust the axis orientation by adding: scale <1,1,-1> rotate <90,0,0>  to 
the exported blocks.

Hope this helps,
