Homeworld 2 continues the epic struggle of the Hiigarans and their leader Karan S'jet. Many thought their hardships would end when they returned to Hiigara, yet fate has not been so kind to the Exiles. Now the Hiigarans face a new and bitter enemy, a renegade clan from the eastern fringes of the galaxy, who wield the power of the ancients. Homeworld 2 chronicles the valiant journey of the Mothership and its crew into the oldest regions of the galaxy to confront their new foe and discover the truth behind their exile.

1- Install the game
2- Update to 1.1
3- Open a command prompt (Windows key > type "cmd" > run as admin)
4- Copy/paste the following line of text (you can right click to access the paste option)

bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff

5- If "Operation Completed Sucessfully" appears then restart your computer
6- When your computer comes back on right click on your Homeworld 2 shortcut and set it to ''Run as Administrator''
7- Press Allow and ENJOY!!!

P.S. You will need to allow the game to run as administrator every time you play

all I get is:

"The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
Access is denied"

Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong

As Nathanius wrote above. Just remember to run CMD as admin!

I did everything you said, and yet it did not work, all that happens after I start it as admin is that it thinks for a minute, and then it closes. When I input the "bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff" line, it says "operation completed successfully".

You need to shift click the restart button, and when the menu comes up, go Boot options, then press F10. Find the boot options sub tab in there (third tab), and turn Secure boot to false. Then do as Nathanius said. It might work for you, but I still cannot get it to work.
