The exception is raised when loading GetMessageFactory class which is implemented in unmanaged library  BTSMessageAgent.dll.

This CLSID is located in the registry:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6C90E0C2-4918-11d3-A242-00C04F60A533}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6C90E0C2-4918-11d3-A242-00C04F60A533}\InprocServer32

And the subkey InprocServer32 refers to the full path of the BTSMessageAgent.dll

BTSMessageAgent.dll is present in <Biztalk installation directory>\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2013 R2\Bins64\BTSMessageAgent.dll.

In our case the dll was referring to incorrect path, in which BTSMessageAgent.dll was not present.

Corrected the registry key to point to right path and dll to resolve the issue.

 Hope this helps.
