After some chats with Lowes folks they suggested - as you did - to use the self leveling compound first.

which I did - and it worked well!

very pleased

Not sure about anyone else, but if I had a buddy, or relative that was insisting on using something I know would not work I'd leave and do nothing.
Funny how when it fails they quickly forget it was there idea to do it that way and your going to get blamed for it.
I want people to ask "who did that for you" not "who did that to you".

IntegraPLY/Paper Back Underlayment


Can anyone help me understand how the underlayment can be buckling. I sta[stapled with recommended staples on every X it down I used IntegraPLY/Paper Back Underlayment, It was stable and fine. a few days latter I installed the glue , let it dry as recommended for CVT and with in 24 hours the floor started to buckle. We pulled up the tile and could see it was the underlayment pulling away from the floor has anyone had that experience with away?

You should start a new thread for your question---we need to know if there is a moisture problem below that floor----sounds like water got under it or the room below might have a high moisture content---

How long are the staples?

If the staples are too far apart or some aren't holding for whatever reason, the adhesive will make the underlayment bubble.

I need to lay sheet vinyl in my basement near the exterior door. The subfloor is concrete. Do I need to use a moisture barrier since it is basement and near an exterior door.
What type of underlayments is recommended for this project?
Thanks in advance..!

Vinyl is normally installed directly on the concrete. But if you have a moisture problem, that needs to be addressed first and not with a moisture barrier. Water will collect under a moisture barrier and grow mold.
