The problem is not files generated during the test, but reading the
format fails.  When copying C:\texlive\2015\texmf-var\web2c\tex\tex.fmt
to the current directory, compilation of story.tex succeeds even as a
user.  Copying the format as a user triggers a UAC dialog, though, i.e.,
user has not enough permission to read that file.

Best regards,
