Having seen this asked in the message Digests, thought I would try to answer.
A 3.8 compatible help file was put at:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/tree/master/distribution/platform-specific/windows/Help

After downloading and placing into POV 3.7 Help folder, where you use 3.8,
right-click on the file in Explorer and go to Properties.

Under the General tab apply Unblock so it isn't ignored by Windows.
