Adhesive for t-molding engineered hardwood to tile and carpeting

I have read here a number of times to use Liguid Nails for setting floor moldings on concrete. But, no specific (Panelling, Heavy Duty etc.) adhesive type is mentioned. Glenn once mentioned Liquid Nails Industrial, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Heavy duty sounds logical, but it says it's not recommended for flooring applications??? Any ideas?? Thanks.

I use tap cons, or screws with plastic anchors.
Here's the adhesive they may have been suggesting.

The only liquid nail rated for flooring is one listed for "Subfloors". I use a product called Chemrex which is designed for gluing carpet tack strips to concrete. Can be found at local flooring supply stores (where contractors go for glue, carpet pad, etc). You spread it out, spritz it with water to activate it, set for 2 hours and you are done. Strong enough to stretch carpet on.
