Okay so, I bought and installed "Cradle Of Rome" and played for a long time! Then suddenly it stopped working and this message pops up when i try to open it " FATAL ERROR GetNumBytes failed due to MapAndLoad. The system cannot find the file specified." And I am not sure how to fix it, Please help!

Strangely, this same enquiry appeared here.... It doesn't look like it was resolved, though. Have you made any changes to your system? That seems to be a theme when I Google it. The consensus seems to be to re-download/reinstall the game.

Looks like you might have the wrong operating system, regarding the fatal error?. click here operating system are you using, and what operating system as the game specified?.

The 'click here' seems to have bounced the 'What' to the bottom of my response :O(

spuds: I don't think that's it - the OP says it was working one day, then it wasn't. You'd think he/she might have noticed if they'd installed a new OS... :-

Shayla2267: can you not get back on to the vendor and explain your problem? They may be happy to give you a new activation code, especially if you still have some of the original order documentation.

IiN - I wonder if he/she as perhaps tried a registry repair, as mentioned in the link?.

Shayla2267 - Provide us with more information. Operating system - Did the programme worked fine previously - Have you tried to do any repairs etc.

(I don't know if this is effecting anyone else, but I seem to have a 'voice over' my loudspeaker system?)

I do not have some of the original order documentation still. And Yes the game did work previously. It just recently stopped working. I have Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium. I'm not really good with computers, so no i havent tryed any repairs because im worried i will do something wrong. i have done all updates needed recently though.

Do you have CCleaner download on the computer, if so, run a registry check, and see what that finds.
