You can use below code to convert word to works for me.

var docPath = Path.Combine(startupPath, filename1);
var app = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Application();


app.Visible = true;

var doc = app.Documents.Open(docPath);

doc.ShowGrammaticalErrors = false;
doc.ShowRevisions = false;
doc.ShowSpellingErrors = false;

if (!Directory.Exists(startupPath + "\\" + filename1.Split('.')[0]))
     Directory.CreateDirectory(startupPath + "\\" + filename1.Split('.')[0]);

//Opens the word document and fetch each page and converts to image
foreach (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Window window in doc.Windows)
      foreach (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Pane pane in window.Panes)
            for (var i = 1; i <= pane.Pages.Count; i++)
                 var page = pane.Pages[i];
                 var bits = page.EnhMetaFileBits;
                 var target = Path.Combine(startupPath + "\\" + filename1.Split('.')[0], string.Format("{1}_page_{0}", i, filename1.Split('.')[0]));

                     using (var ms = new MemoryStream((byte[])(bits)))
                          var image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(ms);
                          var pngTarget = Path.ChangeExtension(target, "png");
                          image.Save(pngTarget, ImageFormat.Png);
                 catch (System.Exception ex)
                 { }
doc.Close(Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);
app.Quit(Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);
