Is the file executable? Try "ls -l /home/john/VueScan/vuescan" and the
result should be something like this:
-rwxr-x--- 1 john john 3643 Oct 6 23:10 /home/john/VueScan/vuescan
^ this "x" is the important bit which tells you it is executable. If
it isn't executable, try the command
chmod +x /home/john/VueScan/vuescan
and then start the application again.

While I'm not Kay, I don't think that moving the directory would help.
The /opt directory isn't in any way more special than your home
