The first thing to try would be to run the setup program in compatibility mode. See
HERE

This doesn't always work. If it doesn't, you'll need to look at setting up Win9x on a Virtual program (Such as VirtualBox). Alternatively, you could probably pick up a working Windows 95 box relatively cheap.

I don't think the company is out of business, they may have just dropped the product. Have a look at this page - http://ww2.sjc.edu/mnmiller/teacher...
The last date they listed was 2002 which means they might have a version for Windows 2000 or possibly XP that might run on Win7.
They also have an active phone number on that site you can call for tech support.
Here's another phone number to call, they said they might have limited stock available - (800) 527-7638.
One last site to try - http://www.tomsnyder.com/

If this program worked in WinXP and you have at least Win7 Pro, you could try Windows XP Mode.
