Norbert, I tried out 4 versions. Those with apostrophe gave no output at
all. I tried quotation marks instead. Then I get output only without
backslash. Here are my tries:

| d:\>kpsewhich --expand-path='\$TEXMFLOCAL'
| d:\>kpsewhich --expand-path='$TEXMFLOCAL'
| d:\>kpsewhich --expand-path="\$TEXMFLOCAL"
| d:\>kpsewhich --expand-path="$TEXMFLOCAL"
| c:/Programme/texlive/2012/../texmf-local
