    In the past I have put down regular vinyl tile (non self stick) with
    floor adhesive with no problem. Is there any harm in using it with
    self-stick vinyl tile? I wanted to put floor adhesive to prevent the
    self-stick tiles from popping up plus to give it some added strength
    to adhere to the floor.

    That's what I did in 1983. The kitchen floor is still intact and in
    pretty darned good shape, considering its age.

    Some tiles recommend using an adhesive that sets to a sticky surface, so it
    is like putting two pieces of duct tape together sticky side to sticky side.
    Then try to get it apart. My laundry room floor used this method, nothing
    has moved in 25 years.

    Yeah... Amazing... It is called "contact cement" it is the same
    magical
    glue that is used to attach laminate surfaces to the substrate which
    is
    supporting it...
