UpdateWordCount is missing in version

I was trying to get exact word count in document using below code.

using Syncfusion.DocIO.DLS;
using Syncfusion.DocIO;
using System.IO;

namespace DocIO_MergeDocument
class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
       //Creates a new Word document
        WordDocument document = new WordDocument(@"InputDocument.docx");
        //Update the words count in the document.
        //Get the updated words count
        int wordCount = document.BuiltinDocumentProperties.WordCount;
        //Releases the resources occupied by WordDocument instance
But thrown Error UpdateWordCount is not in context.

Hi Mohan, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We tried to reproduce the reported issue from our side but the Word counts are updated properly using UpdateWordCount method. We suspect that the reported issue might be document specific i.e., document elements. So, kindly we request you to share the issue causing input Word document which will be helpful for us to provide you a prompt solution at the earliest. 
Kindly refer the following forum in which we have discussed about UpdateWordCount and PageCount behaviors in details https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/96363/page-count-of-current-document
