Should I install my closet track on the floor or sub-floor

A quick learner from harrogate tn says:
I am installing new hardwood flooring and I need to know if I install a new floor track on the hardwood or on the sub-floor.The track we are replacing new is the 23-258.

It depends on the height of the doors and the height of the opening. I would think it would be best to install the wood floor first and then install the track on top, in case you replace the track and doors in the future. Then you won't have to fill in the gap in the wood floor. That's just my personal opinion, though. I highly recommend checking the door height in conjunction with the opening height you need.
