Windows programs MacDrive Pro and TransMac are capable to open MacOS X .sparseimage files.

Does it include encrypted sparseimage files ? Are there other programs to open such files ?

The MacDrive Pro app has a free trial... Try it. – JoshP Sep 4 '12 at 14:56
Pro is the only version that supports sparseimage files, so no it does not do encrypted sparseimage files, I could only find a possible solution for – Moab Sep 4 '12 at 15:04
Unfortunately java-written dmgextractor (dmgx) does not support sparseimage files. – epsicot Sep 4 '12 at 16:37
From MacDrive Pro support: "No, we do not support encrypted image files of any kind in MacDrive at this time." – epsicot Sep 4 '12 at 17:18
