I have to admit that I didn't tested the JavaDB-based factory on Windows (which 
is admitly a huge negligence) and I wonder if the ":" part in "C:\" is causing 
confusion in the context of JDBC URL. I need to investigate.

In the main time, could you try to force the usage of the PropertyEpsgFactory 
with the following code please? (hoping it work as expected - please let me 
known if it doesn't).

Hints.putSystemDefault(Hints.CRS_AUTHORITY_FACTORY, PropertyEpsgFactory.class);
