Have you tried to delete all generated files between steps 10 an 11?
Maybe they are owned by an administrator and ordinary users are not
allowed to overwrite them.

>> C:\Users\Stephan>tex story
>> This is TeX, Version 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2015/W32TeX) (preloaded format=tex)
>> tex.exe: c:/texlive/2015/texmf-var/web2c/tex/tex.fmt: Permission denied
> Steps to reproduce:
> (This is an installation from a local rsync mirror. There's no other
> TeX Live installation and no legacy target directory c:\texlive.
> There's no on-access virus scanner installed here, only ClamWin
> on-demand scanner.)
> 1. Log-on as user with administrator privileges.
> 2. Open a command prompt with elevated privileges (e.g., type 'cmd' in
> quick search and hit Control + Shift + Enter).
> 3. cd path\to\local\rsync\mirror
> 4. Run install-tl-advanced.bat
> 5. Click 'Continue' button in anti virus advice window.
> 6. In TL setup windows change first entry from 'scheme-full' to
> 'scheme-minimal'. (I observe the same problem with a custom collection,
> too. I've tried several times.) Don't change any other settings.
> Note, 'install for all users' is set to 'yes'.
> 7. Hit 'Install TeX Live' button.
> 8. After installation close TL GUI.
> 9. Open new command window.
> 10. Type 'tex story' and hit Enter. At the TeX prompt type '\bye' and
> hit Enter. The file compiles fine, DVI output is generated.
> 11. Log-off administrator user.
> 12. Log-on as normal user.
> 13. Open command window.
> 14. Type 'tex story' and hit Enter. Bummer!
> Installation log is attached. There's no TeX log file created when
> trying to compile file story.tex.
> Anybody else observing the problem?
