If the university paid for the LabVIEW license they probably have a right to whatever you develop with it.

 

It seems to me like you should not be selling an application but they should hire you as a contractor to write software for them. You should be paid for the work, not for the final product.


Thank you, now I have a clear idea Smiley Happy

altenbach is right you need to hammer this all out in a contract with the university before a single line of code is written  object is dropped on a block diagram.

Also pay attention to the details of such a project contract. It is not the same if you develop a software for them, and you give them the installer only, or also the source code. If they have only the installer, they will need you in case of any modification request in the future. If you give them the source code too, they can just get someone else to make the modifications they want cheaper, etc...
