Installing laminate over carpet

Hi there, I need your advice please. Iím renting and the flooring is carpet itís 6years old carpet and my son is allergic to dust and carpet is the worst thing for his case, of course the property management refused to change it to laminate flooring ( this is their typical finishing for all their apartments). I want to install laminate flooring over the carpet and I know that it will not work because in some areas it still have high pile. So I thought to install Clear Vinyl Plastic Floor Runner/Protector for Deep Pile Carpet all over the place and on top of it will be the laminate , so it will give harder surface under the laminate. What do you think? Could that help? Or any other suggestions please.

Sorry you already know the answer, you can not under any circumstances install any type of flooring over carpeting!

You probably need to do some negotiating with the landlord to remove the carpet!!
