Summary0031648: Game Options: We should catch error messages from the asset compiler when unable to Preview texture pages
DescriptionAssuming we're not able to fix the root cause (e.g. OS file permissions or antivirus blocking us), we should catch error messages from the asset compiler when users are unable to Preview texture pages and show a dialog saying this happened. This would not only clarify to the user what's going on, but it could then advise a suitable FAQ to view in order for them to fix the issue without needing to send us a ticket to ask.

E.g. the following line, which is logged to the ui.log but appears otherwise ignored:
[18:38:43:624(9d44)] Error '-532462766' creating texture page preview

Steps To ReproduceI am unable to reproduce, but the original ticket is a file-permissions issue when the TEMP folder and the project itself are on a different drive to GMS2 and the base project.
