RAM Charger is first and foremost a
System Extension, though it contains our "obsolete"
"Heads-Up Control Panel" as well. The RAM Charger System
Extension loads at startup (showing the icon at the bottom
of the screen for your personal satisfaction), and provides
memory enhancement - applications grow and shrink.
Apple has always supported putting some
combinations of multiple things in one file, which means one
may put a Control Panel in the same file as a System
Extension. Using this technology we also put our trim
"Heads-Up Control Panel" in the same file as the System
Extension, to avoid littering your disk with another
This provided Apple with a dilemma:
display the type as "Control Panel" or "Extension"? I
suspect that since access from the Finder is more likely to
be for usage as a "Control Panel", you see our RAM Charger
file as a Control Panel despite the fact it is both a
Control Panel and a System Extension.
The way the system handles System
Extensions, they can be in the Extensions folder, System
Folder, or Control Panels folder (as long as they don't
contain some other resource needed by the product that
requires the file to be in a certain location). Control
Panels may be placed anywhere (as long as they don't contain
an Extension or some other resource needed by the product
that requires the file to be in a certain location).
Given all this information, we have
chosen to put RAM Charger in the extensions folder since the
Heads-Up is "obsolete" (the pull-down menu we fell is a
better service). You may move the file to any of the
Extensions folder, System Folder, or Control Panels folder -
though the installer will put it back if you rerun the
installer (for example to update).
