Migrate cold backup files from HP-UX to Windows

Is it possible to migrate the cold backup files (Oracle 10g) from HP-UX to Windows (Oracle 10g)?

What you are suggesting is most likely not possible. The format of the datafiles are platform-dependent. So Oracle datafiles on HP-UX are not compatible with Windows. However, you may be able to use the RMAN utility to convert the endianness of the files before plugging them into an Oracle database on Windows with the Transportable Tablespace feature.
