No, I cannot understand why the texdoc command does
not work properly. Actual scripts are in
a directory $TEXMFDIST/scripts/texdoc.
Viewers are defined in config.tlu.
The command texdoc.exe actually runs like

texlua $TEXMFDIST/scripts/texdoc/texdoc.tlu ... ...
($TEXMFDIST should be replaced by the real path.
In your case, it may be
$TEXMFDIST ---> d:/tex/live/2013/texmf-dist

For example,
texdoc fontspec
is almost equal to
texlua $TEXMFDIST/scripts/texdoc/texdoc.tlu fontspec
