AD FS does not call OnError when MFA adapter throws an exception in Windows Server 2012 R2

This article describes an issue that occurs in Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) in Windows Server 2012 R2. A hotfix is available to fix this issue. The hotfix has a prerequisite.
Symptoms
Assume that you set a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) relying party in AD FS. You register an external Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adapter and set AD FS to invoke it. In this situation, when authentication failed exceptions are thrown by MFA adapter, AD FS does not call the OnError event. Instead, AD FS sends an error message back to the SAML relying party.
