Abstract: We present the results of the EROS2 search for the hidden galactic matter ofthe halo through the gravitational microlensing of stars in the Magellanicclouds. Microlensing was also searched for and found in the Milky-Way plane,where foreground faint stars are expected to lens background stars. A total of67 million of stars were monitored over a period of about 7 years. Hundreds ofmicrolensing candidates have been found in the galactic plane, but only one wasfound towards the subsample of bright -well measured- Magellanic stars. Thisresult implies that massive compact halo objects machos in the mass range$10^{-7}M \odot
