If you've used a razor type scraper and can no longer remove
the paper backing, and you're sure the glue is tightly
holding the paper backing to the floor, the polymer modified
thinset will work.
In an ideal world, a professional like myself uses an air
powered sharp scraper blade to remove everything down
to the cement, but if you're a homeowner and you've
done about all you can removing that vinyl, what you want
to do is a reasonable compromise. You always take a
risk not removing that backing, but it's up to you to make
a judgement that the backing is not loose, but is still
tightly bonded to the floor.

You couldn't be a professional. First if you were, you'd
appreciate how I try to help people here. Somehow my
helpfulness aggrevates you, so you must be jealous of
me for some reason, or just a jerk in general.
Secondly a professional wouldn't sabotage the posts
of a helpful person like me...they would recognize
my helpfulness and have the best interest of all the
questioners in mind. Somehow you only think of
yourself, post stupid stuff anonymously without any
regard to how much your mis-information leads
questioners away from good information they're getting.
Bottom line, I think you are a wannabe home depot
installer or something, wishing you could be a real
professional like others here (including myself),
somehow obsessed with posting stupid childish
little jabs. The way you mis-quote people you
are insulting shows you have no integrity, which
I'm sure reflects on your work ethic.
Go away or start being helpful to the posters.
Have a nice day!
What's important is that the remaining "backing" is not
loose. Sometimes it can appear bonded but the adhesive
will have let go. If unsure you can poke at it here and there
with a sharp screwdriver to locate loose pockets of
