Option Strict On disallows implicit conversions from 'Object' to 'System.Guid'

I'm getting the following error:

Option Strict On disallows implicit conversions from 'Object' to 'System.Guid'

Here's my code:

Dim prmOutputParam As SqlParameter = cm.Parameters.Add("@UserKeyGUID", SqlDbType.UniqueIdentifier)
prmOutputParam.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output

Dim tmpGUID As Guid
tmpGUID = cm.Parameters("@UserKeyGUID").Value

What is the proper way to tell .NET that cm.Parameters("@UserKeyGUID").Value is a Guid and not an Object?

This should work.

tmpGUID = CType(cm.Parameters("@UserKeyGUID").Value, Guid)
