Thanks for the info Steve.
I wrote a configuration script to create a Cream shortcut, create the "Edit with Cream" context menu item, copy my cream-user.vim to my profile directory and update cream-autocmd.vim to disable cursor position history, then ran it on all my systems. It's all good now.
I don't know how to create/modify the Preferences menu code, but Cream has inspired me to learn and play with Vim's configurability. Cream is a top-notch package.

views\ is for individual file info (&viewdir) and general vim
environment (&viminfo). tmp\ is for file back ups (&backupdir).

This is done via autocmd in cream-autocmd.vim. Look for the
101:" view save
102:autocmd BufWrite * mkview
and comment them out. Or send me (rough) code for a Preferences menu
item in cream-menu-settings coupled with a global Cream variable in
cream-lib and I'll add this as a permenant Cream option. :)
