The Win32 install does nothing to change the password for sysdba. If the
security database is non-existent it will provide a default empty one
with just SYSDBA/masterkey. Otherwise it will leave the existing security
database in place and provide a backup of the empty default.

Would I be far off in speculating that upgraded in place and you forgot to
try your own SYSDBA password?
