After some research, my tentative procedure is as follows, though I am not sure if it will work from 32 bit Win2000 to x64 Win2003; My reference
is Metalink Doc 341880.1 (Though it is for Linux).

Will this work?

(i) Copy the datafiles and recreate the control file.
(ii) Alter database open
(iii) Startup upgrade
(iv) Run _at_$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlirp.sql
(v) shutdown immediate;
(vi) Startup upgrade
(vii) Run _at_$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlrp.sql
