Update:

In WineBottle give the Identifier a name like com.pg.powertracks as it goes
in User/Application Support/com.pg.powertracks.

To get your BB track into PowerTracks Export then then give the a simple name like Drums, Fiddle etc..

You can save files to User/Application Support/com.pg.powertracks/drive_c/pt/songs, as PowerTracks will open in the pt folder.

1. Save your BB song again as song-powertracks.SGU then after save rename to MGU.

2. PowerTracks File > Open song-powertracks.MGU (this will give your chords).

3. Now select the first track > File > Import > Bass.WAV, next track Drums.WAV etc..

4. You can Import the RealCharts Midi as well, in RealTrack Prefs check Save RealCharts in Midi file/BB Song MGU

5. File > Save Special > Midi > File on Disk.

6. PowerTracks File > Import song-powertracks.MID ** Don't import Chord from the Midi file !!!

Thanks for the trouble to post this..
Will the converted Powertracks run reasonably bug free?

If you just need backing drums you can use a midi file for Bublé's version of "Sway", you can also use http://www.powerdrumkit.com/ it is free for Win or Mac.
You can also use it in Reaper https://www.reaper.fm/ that is free to try and try...
