VICH:

The dialogue buttons are a fixed size, so the text must fit into them. You should make the dialogue text clearer, so that the language used in the buttons is as simple as possible. I realize you're on Windows, but Apple's Human Interface Guidelines are really very good. This is the section on dialog boxes:

That last link was for the Human Interface Guidelines as a whole. The section on dialog boxes is here:

Another approach (which is also web compatible, if you ever intend to traipse down that path) is to build your dialog as a layout. It requires you to split your script up into "pre-dialog" and "post-dialog", but it does work and gives you a lot of flexibility.
