"Root element is missing" from a WCF service hosted in BizTalk

When hosting a WCF service in BizTalk, one can come across the error message "Root element is missing" when trying to browse the service metadata.

This error is due to the account running the application pool which in turn is hosting the service in IIS not having access to the BizTalk databases. Make sure that the account has access to the appropriate BizTalk databases, and the service should be fully browsable.
