No.  Read second paragraph more carefully:

 The previous paragraph of this Agreement does not apply to any invention for
 which no equipment, supplies, facility, or trade secret information of the
 Company or Client was used and which was developed entirely on Employee's own
 time, and (a) which does not relate to the business of the Company or Client

This means that they own it if he used Microsoft stuff to develop it *or*
it has to do with software.
