The following question may be of further help (aka details):

Please explain the ODBC Administrator situation in 64-bit Windows 7.

when i use C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe, i see the driver

This is the 64-bit ODBC Administrator. If you can see the driver only here, you only have the 64-bit ODBC driver installed. Try installing/registering the SQL Anywhere 32-bit ODBC driver, and try again with C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe:

regsvr32 "%SQLANY12%\bin32\dbodbc12.dll"

Are you installing the full SQL Anywhere package, or are you installing a third-party product that installs SQL Anywhere in the background as part of its own install? If you haven't purchased SQL Anywhere directly, you should speak to your third-party software vendor directly to see if they can supply you with a 32-bit driver (and to see if they allow third-party access to the database).

If you have purchased the full SQL Anywhere product, you should need to just select the "(32-Bit) Database Client Components -> [X] ODBC Driver" during the SQL Anywhere product install. The file will appear exactly as I mentioned it in my post: "%SQLANY12%\bin32\dbodbc12.dll" (e.g. "C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 12\bin32\dbodbc12.dll")

I had to register the ODBC driver manually in a command prompt that had been run as Administrator. The command was:

odbcconf.exe INSTALLDRIVER "SQL Anywhere 11|Driver=%SQLANY11%bin32dbodbc11.dll|"
