Under Engineered Hardwood Flooring

I want to install engineered maple hardwood flooring over 5/8" OSB. It'll be floating and glued to each other. Do I need any sort of vapor barrier if installed above ground level. The dealer has told me I will only need 1/4" foam underpadding to minimize movement.

Any comments?

Yeah, the foam pad the manufacturer sells and recommends will work fine, and will keep you within any warranty that comes with the flooring.
