I would like to use the function of TeXnicCenter 1.0, where is automatically downloads missing packages used. The problem is, that the repository it wants to download from does not exist anymore (the one on piotrkosoft.net).
How do I get TeXnicCenter to try with another repository?

Use the "packages shall be installed from a directory" option instead.
Download the packages you want from
to a directory on your own system.
Also download the files
so that the directory is recognized as a package repository (change 2.9 to the relevant version number, presumably).

To change the repository in MiKTeX you need to open the package manager. Then go to
Repository > Change Package Repository.
Then you have to choose the option "Packages shall be installed from the Internet".
After this you should be able to choose a new repository.
