Installing on Windows 2008

We are currently MySQL users at the school and I want to migrate us to MariaDB. I tried installing mariadb-5.5.44-winx64.msi and although it installed fine there was no option to migrate the MySQL databases while I installed and there is no migration wizard in the stat menu too. Can anyone help me get up and running.

If there is no wizard (have not checked myself, so can't tell why) there should still be a command line utility 'mysql_upgrade_service.exe' you can run from elevated prompt, that does it without much UI. This upgrades services, and you'd need to know the service name to use it.
