Can anyone help?

Possibly, this is because the DLL has been compiled against a later version of the .NET framework.

You could try rebuilding the DLL using VS 2003.
I try to open "src/edtFTPnet.csproj" with Visual Studio 2003, but I get an error "Unable to read the project file [...]. The project file is missing the VisualStudioProject section."

2003 is ancient, so yes, the project file won't be compatible. You'll need to create another.
