I've never had a problem with vinyl adhesive. I did one time have a problem
with tile adhesive (mastic) and they are very similar. I needed to re-use
the tiles and the only way I found to get the mastic off was to heat them
with a torch until whatever binder in the mastic was gone; at that point,
the solids left were powdery and came off easily.
