If you have both versions on your computer, it's probably a matter of you double clicking on your sla file and Windows thinking that's associated with the older version. Either change the association, or right click on the sla file and use Open with... to select the correct scribus version, or open scribus 1.3.8 from the start menu and then open your file from there.
