Questions and discussion about building and using Max for Live devices

I need to make an independant max patch to communicate with OSC; will I have any problem just opening max 8 inside live from a random patch; create a new patch (.maxpat); test it; save it; and then use it without live inside the demo version of max 8; as a runtime patch? From what I understand I just can't access audio and midi from inside max 8 in max for live mode but otherwise it's a fully functional max; and from the demo I can't save (or I'd use a 30 day trial); but can use the patch as you would with max runtime in older versions. Could be useful to create little midi/OSC utility tools without a full max 8 version. I don't intend to use audio or video in standalone max anyway so a full licence seems a bit much for a few utility tools.
oh ok I figured it would. I mean if I meant to get in heavy audio work with max I'll buy a licence. Even for a complex midi project I'd probably need to consider it; as I can't really test midi real time; only through live.
