Could not execute statement. External environment cannot be started, external process terminated on start up SQLCODE=-1567, ODBC 3 State="HY000" Line 4, column 28

You have a XP 64Bit, and you reference to a 32-Bit java.

So now the question is: Are you using a 32 or 64 Bit dbeng12/dbsrv12 ?

So you tried to use a 32-bit Java environment with a 64-bit SQL Anyhwere server?

FWIW, that should work under the following circumstances:

If the Java VM is a different bitness than the database server, then ensure that the client libraries with the same bitness as the VM are installed on the database server machine.

So if you install the 32-bit JDBC client binaries (in addition to the 64-bit ones), that should suffice.
