This can be done using AWK command by passing the $2 in the script. Please refer the below link for awk tutorial.

My approach:

./ [platform] '[full path]'

if [ $# -ne 2 ]
  exit 1
FILE_WINDOWS=$( $LS "$2" | $GREP "fix_com" )
case "$1" in
    [whatever] ;;
    [whatever] ;;
    [whatever] ;;

You are not being very logic, since you accepted the plateform as an argument then why not for the path as Dr. House suggested?
You are to rewrite your script and use and set getopt with while and tuttiquanti...

A couple example command line processors of different methods...

The method I prefer... I believe it's originator is cfajohnson ... Thanks!
I have formated mine vertically though.
while [ $# -ge 1 ]
  case $1 in
    -h | --help) echo help; exit ;;
    -v | --version) echo Version 0.01; exit ;;
    -V | --Verbose ) versbose=1 ;;
    -o ) filename=$2; shift ;;
    -o*) filename=${1#-o} ;;
    --output=) filename=${1#*=} ;;
    -s) searchphrase=$2; shift ;;
    -s*) ${1#-s} ;;
    --search=) searchphrase=${1#*=} ;;
    -f) format=$2; shift ;;
    -f*) format=${1#-f} ;;
    --format=) format${1#*=} ;;
    -*) echo invalid option >&2; exit 1 ;;
    *) args="$args
set -f
set -- $args
set +f

Don't know who posted this... Personally I do not like the getop method or the use of basename... However I believe it is the most common method.
usage() {
	echo `basename $0`: ERROR: $* 1>&2
	echo usage: `basename $0` '[-[abc]] [-o file]' '[file ...]' 1>&2
	exit 1

set -- `getopt "abco:" "$@"` || usage

a= b= c= o= 
while :
        case "$1" in
        -a) a=1;;
        -b) b=1;;
        -c) c=1;;
        -o) shift; o="$1";;
        --) break;;
shift # get rid of --
# rest of script...
