Looks like you might have skipped reading this part of the response from Aya?

f you install the _exact same version_ of oracle on your new server and
create a DB with the _exact same configuration_ as your old DB, you should be able to restore your backup (the above files) with minimum problems by shutting your new DB down and replacing its version of the above files with the ones from your backups. Let me re-emphasize that your oracle versions (up to three decimal places) must be the exactly the same.

  • To shutdown the database you go into windows services and stop the oracle related ones ...
