I just installed 1.05 last night (and the game yesterday, so I had not played the Hannibal mod, though I did play the original when it came out, with no problems). I also got a critical error message, saying I could not load my Saved game. I do not have any Saved games (I rechecked the folder, just to be sure).
Here is what I found in the log:
