Maybe if you take a look at the sudoku i try to solve you get a better understanding what kind of software i need.

This is quit impossible to solve (or does any SUDOKUMASTER has an idea???) on paper because of the big number of candidates.....

That's not what is normally referred to as a 12x12. That term usually refers to a puzzle like this one:

Furthermore, the puzzle in your image is a killer sudoku AND a diagonal sudoku (aka sudoku-X). I've never seen killers other than 9x9 (including multi-grid variants). I'm pretty sure you're not going to find any software that handles puzzles like these. Where did you find this one?

I posted this puzzle to the SudokuSolver forum, and while no one came up with a solver to help you with the puzzle, someone DID solve the puzzle, posting a couple of hints and a walk-through:
