The technique is called screen-scraping. There are tools that automate the screen caps but even that way it is an absolute pain to run hundreds of screen-caps into a single document. And it should not be necessary for a commercial product.
Given the approach they took, top to bottom, they *deserve* to go out of business. (Though I'm somewhat sorry for their customers.)
