Microsoft has provided a list of features Removed or Deprecated in Windows Server 2012. Link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831568
Included in this list is: ODBC support for 16- and 32-bit applications and drivers is deprecated. Use 64-bit versions instead.
Do we know if the same restriction will apply to the Windows 8 desktop platform?
What impact will this have on support for 32 bit client applications using ODBC?

ASA 9 has long been out of engineering support so Sybase (now SAP) will not be testing nor providing engineering support for ASA 9 on Windows 8 or Windows 2012.
SA 11 is still supported by engineering and AFAIK engineering has been testing it (and SA 12) on an early version of Windows 8... and I have not heard of any issues.
I do not know if MS deprecation of 32bit ODBC on Win64 will have any effect.... but as long as the the support in Windows is still there and 32bit apps still work on Win64 SA will likely continue to work. (but note this is a forward looking statement and I do not know what will happen in the future!)
