Hi davetough;

To your question, "does this mean that program is written in .net 3.5 version", Yes it targets the .Net Framework version 3.5

To your question, "if it does- is there any chance it will run in version2.0?", No, although you can target it for .Net Framework 2.0 and recompile it. If the program is using any of the new features of .Net Framework 3.5 you will need to re-write those sections to only use .Net 2.0 functions. Once that is done then it will run on 2.0 of the Framework.
