Complete code.

using System;

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Result.Text = "";
    }
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName.Length == 0 || FileUpload1.FileBytes.Length == 0)
        {
            Result.Text = "Please select PDF file at first!";
            return;
        }
        byte[] rtf = null;

        SautinSoft.PdfFocus f = new SautinSoft.PdfFocus();
        //this property is necessary only for registered version
        //f.Serial = "XXXXXXXXXXX";
        f.OpenPdf(FileUpload1.FileBytes);

        if (f.PageCount > 0)
        {
            //Let's whole PDF document to Word (RTF)
            f.WordOptions.Format = SautinSoft.PdfFocus.CWordOptions.eWordDocument.Rtf;

            // You may also set an output format to Docx.
            //f.WordOptions.Format = SautinSoft.PdfFocus.CWordOptions.eWordDocument.Docx;
            rtf = f.ToWord();
        }
