Hello.
I accidentally erased the project file(.capx). But I still have the autosave file(.autosave.capx). Is it possible to open this file in construct 2?

Yes. Right click > Properties > Rename is to (projectname).capx (remove the .autosave part.)

Yes, I tried it. But construct 2 gives the following error: Unable to open <File Path> for unzipping.

What about your Backup Files?

It's possible the autosave is also corrupt, so try the same thing on a .backup file.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
