File path containing %

I would like to get the path for directories containing % (like %MATLAB_ROOT%, %APPDATA%, etc.) in Windows. However, functions like fileparts cannot interpret the percent sign. Is there a way to make this possible within MATLAB, or the only solution is to call system commands?

Use getenv, Environment variable to get values of environment variables of the underlying operating system, e.g.
%NAME% gets the value of NAME in the Command Prompt, e.g.
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
