Certainly a problem with file permissions.  Philipp, it would be very
helpful if luaotfload prints the full path+filename to the log file
before opening the file.  "Could not write" can either mean that the
the target directory isn't writable, but it can also mean that it
tries to create the file somewhere else.

If it's known where luaotfload is trying to create the file, then Evan
can investigate file permissions of this particular directory.

However, file permissions are a pain under Windows.  A colleague has
two files with the same name but different content in one and the same
directory.  When he logs in as a mortal user he gets the the older
version but when he logs in as administrator he gets the newer one.
These things are extremely difficult to debug.  Good luck!

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
