This can be work for MSWord:

Here you need to use:
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdStatistic.wdStatisticWords   ' Count Words
instead of:
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.WdStatistic.wdStatisticPages    ' Count pages

Moreover, Excel Interop should do excel reading job and same with the case of PowerPoint ".ppt" file.

If you want to read ".pdf" then "iTextsharp.dll" might help you(which is special for pdf manipulation).

Did you use this??

Word.ApplicationClass WordApp = new Word.ApplicationClass(); 

Open in new window

Also, write:
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop

Open in new window

Also Try using with full reference i have used this interop before.
