I am CCing my answer to the Ifeffit mailing list, as this is an
appropriate question for the list.

Artemis is quite happy using Feff8 for EXAFS analysis, although the
advantage of Feff8 for EXAFS analysis over Feff6 is rather marginal.
You will need to configure Artemis to use Feff8 correctly.  In the
Edit menu, select Edit preferences.  Change the Atoms->feff_version
parameter to 8.  Then change the Feff->feff_executable parameter to
the fully qualified location of the Feff8 executable.  That is, you
must type in something like "C:\Software\Feff8\feff8.exe".

To the best of my knowledge, that will work correctly.
