That seems to work for the moment.

But only if I change user name 'Everyone' to 'Jeder' (German
translation).  Otherwise your original command returnes an error

meaning 'Everyone: Could not map accounts and SIDs.'  Looks like the
all-users name needs one more level of abstraction.

After applying the icacls command from a command windows with
administrator privileges I was able to compile story.tex as a user.
