    I am on Kodi v18.7 “Leia”.
    For me I had to edit the file here:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\addons\skin.estuary\xml\DialogButtonMenu.xml

    I had to open notepad as an administrator in order to allow me to save the file once edited. I had to remove the quotes for the taskkill command to execute.

    Replacing Quit() with:
    System.Exec (taskkill.exe /im Kodi.exe /f)
