I believe they are incompatible and has its own proprietary interface.

Moved to discussions since this has nothing to do with Windows support.
Always read the Kodi online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Quoting myself from thread https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=267840

Short answer is that Kodi can not (ever) be supported on Roku is because Kodi is a native C/C++ application and Roku does does not support (or rather do not allow) native C/C++ applications. Roku's SDK only support script applications that are written in Roku's own BrightScript language.

Reason that Kodi can run on Android is that Google provide an NDK (Native Development Kit) for Android, including for Android TV. The Android NDK is a toolset that allows you to implement parts of your app using native-code languages such as C and C++ programing-languages. This also applies to Android derivatives (custom or forked Android firmware) such as Amazon Fire TV, CyanogenMod, Remix OS, and similar forks of the Android OS.

Apple does the same for iOS/tvOS which is why Kodi could be ported to iPhone, iPad, iPod and the Apple TV too:

And no, Kodi can not be ported to the BrightScript script language (or any other scripting language for that matter). So the only thing you can do is go complain to Roku for not having its own NDK and not supporting native C/C++ applications, like Google does for Android, and Apple goes for iOS/tvOS.

Closing this thread, because I don't think there's anything else that needs to be said.
