Installing PhotoMax in XP

This is my last resort... I have a Polaroid PhotoMax software disk that was designed for Win 95 or 98. My computer has XP, and I've tried several times to install it without any luck.
When I try to run setup, the program loads to 99% then disappears. If it would go to 100% I could run Windows Program Compatibility Wizard, but even running it after the partial load won't install it. I've also tried a friend's disk and it doesn't work either.
I've tried shutting off my Mcafee and other virus stuff and the firewall , but that doesn't help. The strange thing is that I used to have it installed on my XP, but can't now.
I sure love my old camera and if someone could help me get the software working I'd be grateful.

I have that with photoshop, if you click start then run then type msconfig then press enter then start up and remove the ticks from everything manually, avoid clicking disable all, then re-boot and see if it installs, give it a couple of minutes.

When you have found out what it is going to do, then click start then run then type msconfig then press enter then select normal start up, load all drivers
