Nice idea!

But what's the difference between the buttons "Cancel" and "Don't create"? I guess "Don't create" is redundant.

When dropping multiple files/folders the CreateDiskImage Applescript droplet, each item is processed individually, i.e dropping 5 different items will create 5 different disk images.

The button will cancel execution of the entire script, whereas the button simply skips the current file/folder item.

Hope this helps,

My previous comment was crippled by HTML code parsing; it should read:

The button [Cancel] will cancel execution of the entire script, whereas the button [Don't install] simply skips the current file/folder item.
