There's no way you can open kodi in putty. You might be able to get nomachine or some other remote desktop software but I'm not sure if that is possible on raspbian.

Not sure about raspbian but yes it's possible. I just run systemctl start kodi.

VNC might be able to do it. http://elinux.org/RPi_VNC_Server tells you how to set it up in Raspbian.

I think what the OP wants is to start a remote session. IE run kodi on the pi but display on windows. No, not possible.

I'm trying with vnc but I think is impossible. It shows me the desktop but if I open a terminal or if I execute kodi the output goes to hdmi.
Thanks
