I think I resolved this issue.  Update your sources and give it another try please?

tied this in 5.9 lite final and now when I click on Htop under system tools nothing happens. No errors, no window pops up or opens..just no response. Does not respond to run command. Runs fine from command line.

Have the same thing, and I am pretty sure that I had the same thing with the older htop. Unfortunatelly, there is no old htop in the repos, so I couldn't check it.
It works fine from terminal, but fails from lxde menu.
Was going to post this issue into VL Light bug thread, but I couldn't find it.

ADDED:
reported it to wcs' VL Light bug topic - http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=7071.0

I had a similar problem with Pinfo. In the end, I modified the pinfo.desktop file so that it had Exec=xterm -e pinfo -t and set Terminal=false. That made it work even when the Xfce terminal wasn't available. Might be worth a try for htop as well.
