Does anyone know if there Is a scripting command that allows me to shut down (exit) vMix from within a script running on the local PC?

from within vMix ?

google has ......

try this and link the script to a shortcut or streamdeck button (title the shortcut or mark the button with "suicide") ;-)

Code:
For Each prog As Process In Process.GetProcesses
        If prog.ProcessName = "vMix64" Then
                prog.Kill()
        End If
Next

I have done this where I used the HTTP Matrix tool from Eric Pratt and Windows Task Scheduler so I could set a specific time for this to happen after a video played out at a certain time and I wanted to shutdown vMix afterwards, so it can work fine depending on use case but I would not use a shortcut or button since as per doggy's reference to it as a potential "suicide" scenario

Automation for vMix is another option with everything in a single package
