This is expected. We believe that doc.html in the root of the
installation is a good alternative for searching for documentation.

The windows installer adds a shortcut named `TeX Live documentation'
to index.html which in its turn contains a link to doc.html, and the
tray menu for portable use contains a direct link to doc.html as a
replacement for texdoctk.  There is also no longer a menu shortcut
for texdoctk.

By the way: I am still tinkering with the windows wrapper for
tlshell, which may or may not solve your problem.
