I’ve been trying to create a Automator workflow that would get a folder of PDFs (approximately 480mb) and convert it into a dmg file. After selecting the folder, DropDMG launches and begins processing. Every time I’ve tried, the Automator program returns the following error: “The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error -1712.)(-1753)”. Each failure happens very shortly after 120 seconds.
If I open DropDMG directly and drag the same folder of files in, a dmg is created after approximately 9 minutes. It seems to me then that Automator is giving up before DropDMG finishes.
Does anyone have this experience or know of a workaround?
