        It depends on what the vinyl is like and what kind of wood floor you are installing.

        A floating floor can be installed over just about any kind of vinyl.

        A nail-down hardwood can be installed on top of the existing vinyl as long as the vinyl is not a padded floor.

        A glue-down hardwood is not going to work without removing the vinyl first.
