I am not sure I understand what you want.
Do want to start vim exactely where you left it last time, for example
open the last file you were in and position the cursor at the place
where you left it last time?

In this case you can start on commandline with:
which will give you an empty vim

Now depending on which older file you want to reload, in vim do:
which will load your last one, or
which will load the one before your last one, or
wich will load the second one before your last one ...

To find whether you have some +(with) or -(without) compiled, in vim do:
(Also, if you have some .viminfo file it is +viminfo)
