[Samba] CIFS/SMB mount not working with execl()

I am using smb client on my application and mount SMB share using
system() call it works. Also applying the same command on shell it
On SHELL it works:
# mount.cifs //10.99.92.17/samba /mnt -o
In application with system("...") call it works:
system("mount.cifs //10.99.92.17/samba /mnt -o
But if i replace the system("...") with the execl() call i get the below errors.
if (execl("/usr/local/bin/mount.cifs", "/usr/local/bin/mount.cifs",
"//10.99.92.17/samba", "/mnt", "-o
user=name,pass=paswd,domain=domain.some,nounix", (char *) NULL) < 0)
I get the error:
mount: mounting //10.99.92.17/samba on /mnt failed: Invalid argument
I tried to rearrange the the arguments by splitting "-o" and
"user=...." but still i get same error.
What would be the cause here?
What other alternatives I can use in application to avoid use of
system("..") call to mount CIFS ?
