A CAPX is just a renamed ZIP file. Try changing the extension to .ZIP and unzip it to look at what is inside. You can try opening it as a project then.

If you cannot open the .caproj (i.e. it's corrupted) then you should try one of the backups or autosaves.

As it says in the manual, just rename one of the backups/autosaves to 'filename.capx' (obviously, filename can be whatever) and try to open.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
