    I am installing a vinyl click. The current floor is: very thin industrial carpet tightly glued to a cement slab. There are no lumps in the carpet.

    Would I be able to lay the vinyl click over the this?

    No, you would loose any warranty and it makes it to soft.

    Worse, the locking mechanism on LVT is smaller and breaks easier. Read the manufacturers installation guidelines.

    I would scrape as much off as possible. Then roll out underlayment or 6 mil plastic whatever is required.
