On Windows, you would not uninstall MySQL and install MariaDB, this would not work, the existing database will not be found.

Thus On Windows, just install MariaDB and use the upgrade wizard which is part of installer package and is launched by MSI installer . Or, in case you prefer command line, use mysql_upgrade_service <service_name> on the command line.
